Giannis Family Grill House

Greek in Matala

A refreshing change from the run-of-the-mill waterfront tavernas, this been-there-forever family place just past the central square exudes cheer with its turquoise furniture, potted flowers and no-nonsense homemade Greek food, including an excellent mixed grill with salad and potatoes.

It serves organic wines from the Domaine Zacharioudakis in nearby Plouti as well as its own raki.
